President Obama, Shamelessly and Hypocritically Lying. Again.
President Obama gave an interview to CBS on Sunday, wherein he attempted to explain his stance against Arizona’s SB 1070 Immigration bill. Still no word on whether or not he’s actually read the bill yet, but based on his inane murmurings, I’d have to go with No. But, to be fair, during the interview he did display a few things that he does quite well: | Read More »
Illegal Immigration Costs Us Net $100 Billion
The debate over illegal immigration often is clouded with the question of whether illegal immigrants are a net economic benefit or cost to society. This is often amplified by the leftist when he says “these people do the jobs Americans won’t do,” which has often struck me as rather demeaning of both the immigrant and the American – not to mention being ridiculous. As someone | Read More »
The Prop 187 Myth
Of all the issues in which inside the beltway groupthink cloud good judgment, none is more obvious than the tales of immigration and the decline of the GOP. The issue is best summed up by the strategic thinkers inside both the Democrat and Republican Parties who say that opposition to “comprehensive” immigration reform will somehow doom the GOP to permanent minority status. They all take | Read More »
Gov. Brewer removes AG Goddard from immigration law defense.
Let me put it a different way: Gov. Jan Brewer (R, AZ-GOV) removes AG Terry Goddard (D-CAND, AZ-GOV) from the defense of the illegal immigration law that the former supports and the latter opposes. Late Friday night as the Memorial Day weekend began, Arizona’s Republican Gov. Jan Brewer, in effect, suspended the state’s Democratic attorney general from defending the new law in upcoming legal challenges. | Read More »
Leaders Who Despise Their Own People
Not since President James Buchanan left America open to secession and civil war in the late 1850s has America suffered a leader so determined to undermine our fundamental interests.(HT: David “Spengler” Goldman) It was a gala affair on the White House Lawn. The POTUS and The President of Mexico stood behind the podium and delivered addresses of mutual friendship and good will. It seems the | Read More »
Jeff Sessions to Head of Immigration – Do Your Job
Well – at least they admit it. According to the Chicago Tribune, the head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), John Morton, said “his agency will not necessarily process illegal immigrants referred to them [sic] by Arizona officials.” Yes. Let me give you a moment to re-read that paragraph. The guy in charge of immigration enforcement for the United States of America is saying he | Read More »
Response to President Calderon
. House Chamber, Washington, D.C. May 20, 2010. M. Speaker: I rise to take strong exception to the speech of the President of Mexico while in this chamber today. The Mexican government has made it very clear for many years that it holds American sovereignty in contempt and President Calderon’s behavior as a guest of the Congress confirms and underscores this attitude. It is highly | Read More »
Et tu Columbus?
First it was L.A. Next it was Seattle. Now Columbus? From Columbus Dispatch – “Mayor Michael B. Coleman has banned city workers from traveling to Arizona…” and “He agrees with those who want to send a message to the state of Arizona that this is not the American way.” Really?
Obama and Calderon Trash Arizona
At the White House today, during the welcome ceremony for Mexican President Filipe Calderon – a welcoming to an official state visit wherein Calderon is to be celebrated – President Obama stood by as Calderon trashed the state of Arizona and its citizens over Arizona’s immigration control law: At the start of Wednesday’s White House visit, Calderon said the law discriminated against Mexicans and called | Read More »
San Diego to Arizona: “Look, just because we called you racist bigots…”
“…doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t visit:” San Diego tourism leaders and hoteliers fear they could lose a sizable chunk of business this summer from valued “Zonies” who are so angered by elected leaders’ recent censure of Arizona for its illegal-immigration law that they’re mounting an informal boycott of their own. The San Diego Convention & Visitors Bureau and several hotels report receiving e-mails and letters | Read More »
Where Do I Live?
Due to professional obligations that diverted my attention away from RedState and the news of the day for the last couple of weeks, I awoke this morning to learn – well – that the world is officially upside down. Now, I realize that some of this may be repetitive for those who have been paying attention – but imagine my surprise to see the news | Read More »
WH demonstrates that it can read immigration polling.
Like a large section of the right-blogosphere, I like Jake Tapper while being slightly resentful that I have to. It’s nothing against the man; Jake’s a good guy who will do things like this. TAPPER: You’ve said we’re a nation of cowards because we don’t talk freely and openly about race. So in that spirit, let me give it a shot. Do you think the | Read More »
Let’s Burn Kris Kobach at the Stake
This is getting hypocritically ridiculous. You probably don’t know who Kris Kobach is, but you need to. Kobach is a law professor at the University of Missouri and helped put together Arizona’s immigration law. You know that law right? The one a majority of Americans agree with? Well, to heck with tenure, folks are out to get Kobach. Chris Salazar, UMKC alum, said, “As an | Read More »
The Left Zeroes in on Kris Kobach
From the diaries, by Erick “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” ~Saul Alinsky The Left has its new target, and he is none other than University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) law professor and current candidate for Kansas Secretary of State, Kris Kobach.
